Having bought a new machine (running Windows 10 professional) I Have installed the following:

MS Visual Studio 2017 community
MS SQLServer express 2017
Team Foundation Server express 2015

I find that I do the have the option in VS to "Connect to Team Foundation Server"


I have "Visual Studio Team Foundation Server" set as the Source-Control Plug-in.

I can see my server in Source Control Explorer but cannot add folders or items.

If I go into Team Explorer I can see GIT repos   (dunno how to use these) and I can sometimes add a solution to Source control whereby it is visible in Source Control Explorer temporarily.

How can I connect to TFS correctly in VS 2017 Community please?
